Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

That's probably true. Peters even appears in the behind the scenes documentary with Singer all buddy buddy and praising him lol.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I recorded that documentary.

In Look, Up in the Sky: The Amazing Story of Superman, Jon Peters admitted that the Superman franchise was problematic for him: "The elements that I was focusing on were away from the heart, it was more leaning towards Star Wars in a sense, you know. I didn't realize the human part of it, I didn't have that."

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Peters wanted a polar bear/abominable snowman type creature that Brainiac would have as a sidekick so they could sell plush toys to kids. I'm not referring to the Up in the Sky documentary but the main behind the scenes documentary included on disc two of "Superman Returns". Peters is on set standing beside Singer and they're joking around and he says his line about Bryan knowing what he was doing. It was similar to the line quoted from the Up in the Sky documentary.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I wonder if he was still praising Singer when Superman Returns underperformed.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

He was probably back to being his seemingly douchey self. There was reportedly a planned autobiography from Peters with a section dedicated to his allegedly sleeping around with big name actresses but this was stopped before it could be published. Would have been an interesting read. Probably would have contained sections on his dealings with the "Death of Superman" projects as well.

Superman reboot director Zack Snyder calls General Zod being the villain in the film just a rumor.

*shivers* There's people who go "Will Zod be in the movie?" - "No, it's just a rumor." and people who go "Will Khan be in the movie?" - "You know, it's interesting... blabla, we're open to all possibilities... blabla, we can't deny nor confirm it, blabla..."

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Yeah, I hate these wishy washy answers. Just say 'yes' or 'no' (preferably 'no' to both Khan and Zod, because they're perfect as they are in old movies and recasting/reinterpreting them would be stupid).

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I can understand why they don't want to say yes or no at this point, although I think a simple "no comment" would suffice.

The thing is that you usually don't deny or confirm it when it's true. At least I do that. So they could confirm it right away. What are they going to lose now by admitting it that they aren't going to lose in six months?

They like to keep things under wraps for as long as possible. It keeps people guessing and prolongs a bit of buzz around each aspect of the production. Plus there's always the off-chance of a change via rewrites (one of the villains in Green Lantern was changed late in the game).

It's annoying when they do that in the first place.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I'm almost convinced that Goyer and the Nolans have written and structured the script similar to "Batman Begins" and that's fine by me if it turns out that way.

I suspect that had less to do with Jon Peters and more to do with the fact that the movie was going to be directed by Tim Burton. EVERY Burton character looks like that!

20 ways Zack Snyder's Superman can avoid becoming a superdisaster

I like this one...

15.) DO NOT score Superman with pounding rock guitars.
Superman is many things, but he's not rock and roll. He already has a perfectly regal score. If anything, Superman's musical tastes should be 20 years behind the time. He's too busy fighting crime to keep up with musical trends. If anything, there should be a scene where Superman discovers rap music for the first time.
Keep the theme.
Agreed. The 1978 John Williams theme still kicks ass to this day and is among my top 5 movie themes ever.

I also like the website's assertion that we might want to see something like this...

Superman is such a dick!

I don't see the problems with an origins film - the last one was 32 years ago - what's wrong with this generation having their Superman?
I think the problem is that we have had too many origin stories in the last 10 years or so. Everyone that is a fan of Superman knows his origins I don't really want to see another origin story about him.
Yeah, and most origin stories aren't really that interesting. Superman's origins are less interesting than most. He's an alien from another planet. That's it. He doesn't even undergo the same kind of unexpected superpowered transformation that you have with heroes like Spider-Man & the Fantastic Four. Frankly, Superman's origins are my least favorite part of the 1978 Richard Donner movie. IMO, it gets bogged down in self-seriousness until we get to Metropolis and see the crackling chemistry between Christopher Reeve & Margot Kidder.

The outer trappings of Batman's origins aren't very interesting either. His parents are murdered. Batman Begins was able to make that origin story interesting because the entire story was about the unique emotional journey that took Bruce Wayne from grieving orphan to masked hero.

If Superman's origin is a vital part of the story that Goyer, Nolan, & Snyder want to tell, by all means, include it. But don't spend a lot of time on Krypton & what-have-you if you don't have anything to actually say about it.
